    Got Change?

    Build a Culture, Develop Talent, and Leverage Technology to Get Results!

    Organizations in every industry around the globe are dealing with massive change that’s increasing in pace, scope, and complexity at an unprecedented rate.  Yet, the failure rate of major organizational change is estimated at 70% or more, 50% of leaders are viewed as lacking the competencies to drive change, and 70% of employees are not engaged at work today.  The costs of failed change, unequipped leaders, and disengaged employees are staggering, ranging from lost investment to customer dissatisfaction to employee exodus.

    Yet, there are organizations that are getting it right: ones that that execute change that sticks, build the talent it takes to get results, and have cultures that foster engagement, bringing out the best in people.

    Join your with three of our sponsors (Human Synergistics, NOOA, and Change Catalysts) on November 8th for a highly interactive event in which you’ll take a learning journey:

    • Experience how an organization grappling with mission-critical challenges can approach this opportunity for change
    • Engage with peers to develop a plan for change that achieves meaningful and measurable outcomes.
